I decided that I needed to balance out my post from negative to positive.  So I thought that I would let you all know that I have been sleeping sound for quite some time now.  For those of you who have read previous post you know this is a bit of a big deal for me.  No trouble at all once I am ready to sleep I can fall asleep.  I think part of it is I have been centering myself as I lay down for sleep almost every night.  It really really really helps me relax.  The other part and I know this will sound weird I think is my sister.

So my sister made me this necklace right before she moved back to NM.  I have to admit I have been really missing her.  Anyways she made me this necklace and I hung it on the head board on my side of the bed.  Truthfully I forgot that it was there.  When I began to center myself and just make an effort to relax and calm my thoughts though one night I just like noticed it.

It was like boom I am here above your head silly!

Now every night as I am getting into bed I see it and all I can think about is my sister and I am instantly happy and relaxed.  It is like she is there helping me sleep and I am too busy thinking about her and all the many happy memories I have of her to think of anything else.

It has managed to become a part of my going to bed process and I can't help but think that even so far away she is helping me out without even knowing it.

On other news though...

Look and who crawled up on my leg today to say hello!

Shamefully yes I freaked out like a little girl when I noticed.  I jumped up did a little jig and wasn't content to calm down until I found it in the grass so I knew for sure it wasn't still on me.  I haven't the slightest idea what kind of spider this is.  I guess that I am a little relieved that I didn't kill it but well...  Oh I just can't handle it when they crawl on me.

Lol so for the second time today.  I hope you all are doing well.  Have a wonderful night.  I hope to have my PBP up sometimes soon probably tomorrow since it is my day off.


  1. That necklace is so sweet! I hope your problems with your job get resolved soon. It's not worth it if you're miserable. The family you work for sounds.. well to be honest, ignorant! Hate when we're forced to be in situations we don't agree with constantly. I'm always there with my in-laws ;)

    1. My exact thoughts when she gave it to me. So bright and fun. I think unfortunately I am going to have to just leave. I have tried to bring things up and immediately get the subject changed on me which says to me that they aren't interested in hearing what I think. I just hate quitting a job.

  2. I love that your sister's necklace is there for you! So happy you are sleeping ;o) I guess that little spider just wanted to say hi ;o) LOL! Big Hugs ;o)

    1. Lol well at the time I was convinced it was the biggest spider ever and thought I looked like a tasty snack. Now that I am no longer "freaking out" while decent size I realize he isn't as big as I first thought.

  3. I would have jumped too! Holy crap that's a nasty looking spider...

    I just read your previous posts too, and I'm sorry things aren't working out with your employers. I just wanted to say, that though I understand it's difficult to get a job at this time, you NEVER have to put up with the shit they are giving you.

    First of all; Write down every hour you work. You should ALWAYS be compensated accordingly, and you need to stand your ground on that one.
    Secondly; Any employment is legally obligated to offer a certain amount of weeks vacation per year. Look it up, bring it to their attention.
    Thirdly; Sometimes people are just shit-heads, using others as much as they can and throwing tantrums to get their way. They will just plow right over you if you don't stand your ground.
    Fourth; It is inhuman to be at someone's beck and call like that. You have a life - and you have rights! Google them and bring them to the table.

    You deserve better. Good luck!
